Dragon's Crown Sorceress Figurine Can't Be Sold Now...Why?
Whaddya think? Complaints from offended parents hit home? As if the game is even designed for kids, but whatever.
A little while back, DualShockers found a beautiful figure of the Sorceress in Dragon's Crown; it was first unveiled at an art exhibition in Tokyo. You can see pictures of the pretty little figurine through the link, but now the site is reporting that Japanese manufacturer Alphamax has stopped selling the item. Orders aren't being filled.
There's a mysterious notice that says all orders have been halted for "various reasons." The retailer apologizes but doesn't offer any details beyond that. So, what's the deal? Has this 1/8 scale statue pissed off the wrong people? It was bound to happen. The Sorceress really is ridiculously top-heavy, to the point where it's downright comical. But it is comical, yes? The developers mean no offense, certainly.
Still, there has to be a reason for Alphamax's message. And if the figure had simply been out of stock, they would've said that. Instead, there are "various reasons" why you can't get one. Hmm...
